The next game of Ninja Theory will not be console exclusive.
This year’s The Game Awards was perhaps one of the best moments when Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II was unveiled, which immediately took the players off their feet with the specific music of a real band. Although the announcement of the new Microsoft console, the Xbox Series X, was confirmed at the event with this title, this does not mean that it will be released exclusively for this platform.
Anyone who is actively following the gaming industry is aware that Microsoft has had a strategy for some time to focus on both PC and Xbox camps in terms of games and services (see Game Pass). To that end, it might come as no surprise that Xbox brand president Aaron Greenberg has confirmed on Twitter that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is exclusively for PC and Xbox.
It’s being made exclusively for Xbox and PC.

The first part, however, was originally released for PC and PlayStation 4 in 2017, the Xbox One only arrived in 2018, and this year the switches release. Meanwhile, Ninja Theory has become an in-house studio, with Microsoft acquiring the team, so it probably won’t be a surprise to customers that Sony and Nintendo machines will be left out of the sequel.
